I have a soccer game tomorrow night. Actually a double header. It's going to be ugly since I'm not in soccer shape.

I know you don't care, but it IS soccer related.

Im trying to get from tennis to soccer shape again. I just started running again daily...those first few days are the worst. But as everybody that plays soccer knows, if your not in shape you can pretty much forget it.

Hey, it sure beats mindless running on a treadmill.

Just joined a 30 and over league last year - it's a blast, though haven't played in about a month since I rolled my ankle playing basketball.

As for the future of US International soccer success, it really starts with having a more competitive MLS. We need to generate more interest by having more teams and by including a tiered system ala the Premier League.

I love Viera. I think no other player in the world brings so much to both the offensive and defensive side of the field. Cannavaro is also one of my favorite players. I don't think there's anyone better in the world at his position.

Werder Bremen FTW!

It looks like Klinsmann has an offer from the U.S. Soccer Federation. I wonder how the U.S. team would do with him as the coach.

Reports in Sweden insist that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has agreed to join Inter – even if Juventus have today underlined that they are not a supermarket for other clubs.

Ibrahimovic is just one of many Juventini linked with a move away from the club as they face the threat of demotion for their part in the Calciopoli investigations.

Although the Swede has been associated with Manchester United, Milan and Real Madrid, whispers in his homeland claim that he has opted for a Nerazzurri switch.

The former Ajax sensation, who was a disappointment at Germany 2006, is allegedly set to complete the move once he returns from his holiday.

However, Juventus have insisted that they are looking to keep as many of their top stars at the club as possible.

We are trying to make people understand that we are not a supermarket, even if that is not an easy thing to do,” new sporting director Alessio Secco told the Espresso magazine.

Secco, who was promoted to his new job after the resignation of Luciano Moggi, has very clear ideas about the club’s future should they be stripped of their Serie A status.

“We don’t even want to think about Serie C, if needed we will work on getting out of Serie B,” he continued.

“If that happened then we would obviously want to immediately come back up to the First Division and hope to get back into Champions League contention.

“Seeing as that is our strategy, we can’t completely break the squad up. It is better to keep a strong squad, even if costly, than rebuild it in the future.

“Making money from player sales is not our priority right now.”
I don't know what Inter is thinking, bringing in Ibrahimovic. Adriano and Ibrahimovic duo???
